Hunt is on for mistakenly freed murderers

State and federal police fanned out across Florida on Friday in search of two murderers who walked out of prison after documents bearing forged signatures resulted in their release, authorities said.

Meanwhile, the state Department of Corrections said it was merely following a court order and no one in the department is at fault for the men's release.

"It's our responsibility to carry out the order of the court. It's not our job to question what the court does," said department spokeswoman Misty Cash. "We were given the info from the court that their sentence was modified, and we did our role."

    President Reagan increased the debt limit 67% by raising it 18 times.
    President GW Bush increased the debt limit 60% by raising it 19 times
    President Obama has increased the debt limit 31% by raising it 6 times.
    Now Republicans explain to me your problem with raising the debt limit; one that you would shut down the government over.

    I ran across this Mitch McConnell quote from 2011 in which he lays out the GOP strategy that we are now in the middle of, and they are now denying:
    McConnell told The Washington Post about the future of the debt ceiling, “What we did learn is this: It’s a hostage that’s worth ransoming.”
    Until KY gets some pork to re-open, of course.

    Since Reagan enacted ETMALA: 140 billion a year according to National Academy of Science... (What we lose because of non-payment of ER visits by uninsured)
    Who pays that? We do, via higher premiums. ACA addresses that.

    I post facts. I don't argue; I correct. There's a difference, even if you don't care to admit it.

    Look at 11-17 billion that Israel receives every year and 1 billion plus Egyptian military has been getting annually uninterrupted.

    This announcement of aid to Pakistan would likely remain just an announcement as in the past.

    Thanks@banasy for the info.
    The govt shut down was on GOTP agenda since 2010 Rep.Westmoreland made it very clear during his election campaign. "Bringing US govt to its knees like 9/11".

    Bush's wars and tax relief impacted the debt ceiling. Current burden has that recession (worst since Depression) which hit us effects factored in with bail outs.
    This is going to continue no matter who occupies the W.H.

    Yes @ saywhat, everything you just said is true. But....GWB won't be held accountable for any of it because, after all he ISN'T the black prez that got voted in! For all that ppl like to say this country has evolved into a great nation, we haven't evolved much! And shame on us for NOT holding GWB and Congress accountable for their treasonist acts!

    Rightly said @banasy with the conviction of a true American.
    Our 'forgiving' those who intentionally drove us to the brink and harmed US interests no end, committing crimes against America & humanity would haunt us no end too.
